The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Mahama, has highlighted how his past experience as President of Ghana would benefit his leadership abilities if he were to be re-elected.

Speaking at a Building Ghana Tour event in Kambatiak, Mahama emphasized the importance of the knowledge and insights gained from his previous term in office and the time spent out of office.

“I have had the privilege of serving as president before, and that experience is invaluable. There is no manual or course you can take to learn how to be a president. It comes with hands-on experience,” he remarked.

Reflecting on his tenure as president, Mahama expressed pride in the infrastructure projects completed, including the establishment of healthcare and educational facilities across various districts and regions of the country.

During his and the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills’ administration, over 3,000 schools under trees were eliminated, and more than 400 Community-Based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds were built.

Mahama also acknowledged that given another opportunity, he would approach certain challenges differently, citing the benefit of hindsight and reflection on his previous term in office.

“I believe that if given the chance in the next four years, I will be an even better president than before. This is due to the experience I have gained and the lessons learned from my previous term,” he stated.
